Will tooth get worse without root canal?

I had a molar crowned six months ago. It still hurts to chew and cold is sensitive. I've been told I need a root canal. Can I wait or avoid the root canal if the pain and sensitivity are manageable? Or could not getting the root canal cause more damage to the tooth? Thanks.

Sure, you can wait. It won't get better, and won't do any more harm to the tooth.. Be careful the of type and quantity of painkillers you are taking.
